I would add this:

this:

or this:

Unfortunately, the first would push the price of a single bottle up to around $22 each. Either of the last two would push the price of a bottle to around $75 each.

That is not a matrix i would want to see. Why would you ruin a perfectly good dram of whisky by mixing it in a beer?

I once had a very small taste of the Macallan 50. A friend bought a glass (1 oz, measured with a graduated cylinder) and he let me take a sip. It didn't suck. More recently i was treated to a glass of the Glenfarclas 40. A few of us went in on a bottle to give as a gift to a friend who was promoted and he was kind enough to let us enjoy a little of it. That didn't suck either.

Me either - I was just seeing if anyone was paying attention to a post without a political theme.....that said, I wouldn't mix, but I would certainly enjoy a dram or three along with a fine beer. Maybe a nice 16 point IPA or a Tripel Dark or and Dorchester strong and dark...

and a plate of haggis.

The Mac 50 is phenomenal isn't it? I did have the luck to enjoy a dram of the 52 yr old '46 on the house when I retired. To this day I don't know if the allure, mystique and "Holy Grail of Whiskies" made it taste better, but it is by far and away the finest dram I have ever tasted. Hard to justify $7000.00 for a bottle when there's a Martin HD-45 with my name on it somewhere.

Glenfarclas is a superb malt. If you ever get the chance to taste the 1968 25 yr old jump at it. I have a Farkie 20 at home I haven't cracked yet - your post may have triggered its demise.
